Amalgam New Ferrari 250 TR – 1958 Le Mans Winner

Yum is a word we describe the latest project from Amalgam. New is the Ferrari 250 TR – 1958 Le Mans Winner in 1:8 scale.  The model provides a wealth of detail inside and out and affords access to the internal bits too.  If interested this piece from Amalgam will run just under $12,0000 US.  Please contact Amalgam for more information.

About the Ferrari 250 TR…  “A three-time winner of the World Sportscar Championship, the 250 Testa Rossa is one of the most successful Ferraris in history. It is now one the world’s most sought after Ferraris after only 33 of all its variants were ever built. The 250 TR was designed to offer customers already racing with the 500 TRC a much more powerful engine on a similar chassis to help retain the former model’s great handling. Rumour also had it that the FIA would place a three-litre limit on prototypes, and this indeed proved to be the case. As a result, the reliable Columbo-designed three-litre V12 from the 250 Gran Turismo was used. As with other Ferrari racing cars, Enzo Ferrari demanded absolute reliability from all components, resulting in a somewhat conservative design approach that aimed for endurance racing success through durability rather than overall speed. This proved to be a multiple-title winning decision.”

    Seat is poorly done – not acceptable in a $12,000 model. Also… look at photo #4…the left rear wheel… the 3-ear knock-off spinner is on the wrong side! The photo shows what is a right rear spinner. And these are the photos Amalgam is using to promote and sell this piece. Other issues exist too, but no point in diving deeper.

      Amalgam’s seats have always bothered me. At such a big scale and price tag the seats (and everything else) should be modeled using material true to what’s on the real car. Having resin seats is absurd, but in the end, they know their buyers are generally not model collectors; just mainly people with more money than they know what to do with.

    Looking at photos of Hill driving this car in the ’58 LeMans- sure looks like silver-colored wheels, not blue.

      Search Getty Images for ‘’Le Mans 1958’’. You will find a color picture from the race day showing the front wheels were green and the rear blue just like Amalgam did. The car (0728TR) had the same wheels color at Sebring 3 months earlier.
